About me

I work with people who are experiencing emotional issues such as anxiety, depression or trauma which are holding them back or people who are struggling to cope with life’s challenges and adapting to change. Often they have tried other approaches to move forward but ultimately they still feel unhappy or stuck. People just like you. 

In addition to the many different issues that the solution focused approach is effective at helping, my personal passion is helping people with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, chronic pain and phobias.

So with a genuine love of neuroscience, positive psychology and all things brain related, working as a solution focused hypnotherapist allows me to help you understand and overcome PTSD, trauma and the anxiety that impacts our lives.

Having worked alongside special force personnel suffering from PTSD to teens and young adults with anxiety, I am well placed to help. 

Seeing your “ah-ha” moments as it all begins to make sense and you begin to find your footing, gaining confidence and once again enjoying experiences and life, is a journey I get to witness every day.

Showing people how an overwhelming and out of control life can become a positive and exciting future is my passion.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Testimonials and reviews:

"I first met Ciara 12 weeks ago at a  networking meeting and I immediately felt comfortable and at ease with her way of explaining hypnotherapy and how she thought she could help me. At the time I was feeling just a bit "stuck" in life and overwhelmed with all of the things I was constantly procrastinating about. Session 3 was my breakthrough session, all of a sudden something just resonated with me so clearly and with Ciara's help I have managed to completely change the way I think and feel about myself, my business and my family life. I originally signed up for 6 sessions and then signed up a second time too to help me continue on my journey. I couldn't thank Ciara enough and couldn't recommend her highly enough. Fantastic hypnotherapist and genuinely a lovely person who really wants to help."

"Ciara has had a dramatically positive effect on my life. I cannot recommend her highly enough. The sessions have lead me on a positive path and equipped me with the tools to continue improving my life in every aspect. I truly believe what I have been shown will be with me for life and will help me deal positively with life's challenges, right now though it's just an improvement day on day and I relish each opportunity that I create or presents to me. This reprogramming of the mind and thought processes really works for me. I am excited for the future. I thank Ciara for her professionalism and steadfast attitude to help me. Ciara obviously loves what she does."
